Titanfall 3 Plans Delayed to Focus On Apex Legends

Apex Legends is taking most of Respawn's MP focus, causing a shift in plans for Titanfall 3
This article is over 5 years old and may contain outdated information

Respawn surprised everyone when they debuted their take on Battle Royale with Apex Legends with almost zero fanfare, and that surprise turned into a massive success for the studio. With updates on the regular and more seasons on the horizon, it’s understandable that their free-to-play battle royale game would take up much of the team’s focus – even if that does mean Titanfall 3 is on the back burner temporarily.

Earlier in the year, Respawn laid out their plans for a Titanfall “premium game” releasing this year in addition to a Titanfall-themed VR experience. Unfortunately, it looks like that is no longer the case – at least in terms of a third main installment – as the “small” studio that is Respawn stated in a recent news post. 

In their latest post, Respawn laid out major plans for Apex, including season 2. Unfortunately, that same post gave a dire update for Titanfall, as seen below: 

“Lastly, regarding other games in development at Respawn, it is important to understand that there are entirely separate development teams working on Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Additionally, in order to fully support Apex Legends, we are pushing out plans for future Titanfall games. No resources from the Apex Legends team are being shifted to other titles in development here at the studio, nor are we pulling resources from the team working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.”

The reasoning behind this is to avoid “crunch culture,” which is a problem that is increasing in visibility as of late. The good news is that the Fallen Order team is unaffected by the Apex Legends plans, so for those excited about the single-player Star Wars title, there’s no cause for concern there.
